Foster Care is a wonderful experience but it shouldn't be a financial burden.
Before becoming a foster parent you must prove that you are financially fit to take care of your family without the foster care subsidy. If you are unable to care for your own family without the aid of the subsidy, you can not become a licensed foster parent. However, some people do become foster parents for the monthly subsidy. Agencies do their best to keep this from happening.
